Marie was such a joy to know and serve, She was always so friendly, caring and looked out for the others so much. She not only had a great a sense of humor but also had such a positive outlook on life. And what a bonus finding out that I knew some of dearest loved ones, and could chat with her about them. Her delight in-- and love for-- her family always, always made her sparkle. Even though many things had changed, that never did. I am honored to have known you, dear Marie. Your friend, Maelene
